Silent Night Day 2015 - November 21, 2015   1:00pm

Invite your friends, stoke the fire, and get ready for our biggest and best day of the year: Silent Night Day 2015!  We’re excited to throw our annual Silent Night Release Party this year on Saturday, November 21, 2015.  The party starts at the brewery at 1pm. We will have, of course, the 2015 batch of Silent Night, our
bourbon barrel aged Imperial Stout, on tap for the first time. We’ll also have 2012, 2013 and 2014 Silent Night on tap as well, so you can try a four year vertical tasting of past years of Silent Night! 

The 2015 Silent Night 750ml bottles will be available for purchase for the first time as well. Bottles are priced at $16 each.

If you like BBQ, then you’ll be excited to enjoy some fantastic BBQ pork cooked right onsite by Mother Earth’s own Brad Smith, a 1st place winner at Kinston’s BBQ On The Neuse Festival!  Sandwiches and plates will be sold at the event, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the smART Kinston City Project Foundation, which is working to build a vibrant arts and cultural district right in downtown Kinston.  For more information, visit

We’re excited to once again partner with our friends at Counter Culture Coffee for this year’s batch of Silent Night.  Each year, Counter Culture Coffee does a special roasting for Silent Night, and this year a representative from Counter Culture Coffee will be onsite from 1pm-5pm pulling FREE espresso shots using this year’s blend!  Taste this fantastic coffee right alongside your Silent Night!


We look forward to celebrating Silent Night Day each year. The party keeps growing larger, and so this year we decided that a commemorative poster was in order. The best part? We let YOU design it! We received a ton of great submissions for this year's contest, with the winning entry being submitted by Julia Smith and
Robert Cobucci of Atlanta, GA. Check out the event photo for a look at their winning design! We look forward to making this contest an annual affair!

We’ll also be running a FREE shuttle to and from the Hampton Inn all afternoon and evening, so you can enjoy all of the festivities of the day and get you back to the hotel safely.  The shuttle will depart from Hampton Inn to the brewery at the top of every hour (last shuttle at 9pm), and will depart from the brewery to the Hampton Inn 15 minutes before the top of every hour (1:45-9:45).

Last year’s Silent Night release was once again the biggest party we have ever had here. We had so much fun hanging out with you all! We are looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones on one of our favorite days of the year, at an event that is quickly becoming one of the best beer events in North Carolina! More information will be added here as it becomes available, so keep checking back for updates on the happenings of the day. We can’t wait to see you on Saturday, November 21st and share the Silent Night experience with you!
